SS - San Francisco Giants
Giants infielder Marco Luciano is back in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Dodgers.
Luciano didn't take part in Wednesday's 7-1 loss to the D-backs but will return to hit seventh while manning shortstop on Thursday in Los Angeles. The rookie is 3-for-11 with a double with the Giants this season while hitting just .209 with four homers across 18 games at Triple-A.
The Giants have recalled Marco Luciano from Triple-A Sacramento.
Luciano should receive plenty of playing time over the last 10 games after the Giants placed Brandon Crawford on the 10-day IL with a hamstring injury. The final stretch of the regular season should give the Giants a good look at the 22-year-old shortstop as they head into 2024.
Giants infielder Marco Luciano is out of the starting lineup Monday versus the D-backs.
Luciano went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in Sunday's series finale with the Red Sox and will take a seat to begin a series with the D-backs on Monday. The young shortstop has four hits in 12 big-league plate appearances after hitting .292 with two homers and a .995 OPS across six games at Triple-A prior to his promotion.
Giants infield prospect Marco Luciano is making his big-league debut Wednesday versus the A's.
The Giants promoted the 21-year-old from Triple-A where he hit .292 with two homers alongside a .995 OPS in just six games. He has spent the bulk of the season at Double-A where he hit .228 with 11 homers, six steals, and a .789 OPS across 56 contests. He will play shortstop and hit eighth against A's lefty Hogan Harris Wednesday night.
Marco Luciano will be recalled from Triple-A Wednesday vs the Athletics.
The Giants' #2 prospect will get the call after just six games in Triple-A. It's unclear if Luciano will take over as the everyday shortstop with Brandon Crawford expected to return from the IL soon, but he'll look to provide a spark to a scuffling Giants' lineup. He hit .235/.342/.469 throughout the minor leagues in 2023.
